Default orderd the F1 stage 3 clutch...

It will be here this friday, ill put up a little review when I get it on.

question: Whats the deal with breaking in the copper ceramic disc? The usual 300 mile being easy break in?

Also, my sock exedy clutch will be for sale when I get it off.. about 5k miles on it.

I have the same clutch installed right now, probably have close to about 800 miles on it. I will say, its a real bitch to drive in stop and go traffic. It uses the stock Exedy pressure plate and just has a very aggressive disc. In all honesty though, if this is you daily driver, I have a feeling you may end up wanting something a little easier to drive with. Other than that, it handles whatever power I'm making right now just fine!

I've been dd'ing the same clutch for over a year. I have at least 15k miles on it. I ******* love it! The stop and go is only bad in like bumper to bumper traffic. Just cruising around town it is easily tamed. Its simply a great clutch for the money spent and I personally know it will hold at least 190 wtq with ease.
